1990 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan


My first experience with buying a used luxury car with 80k miles. Lots of expensive problems with brakes, faulty engine head bolts but I really liked the way it rode and drove. Finally sold it at 125k miles when it needed new air shocks, at that time only available from mfg. at more than what the car was worth! Even then, probably would have done it but transmission had a weird slipping problem going around corners. This was essentially built on the Taurus platform and with improvements to the items mentioned is what the Taurus should have become in my opinion.

Best Features

Seating comfort, ride and fuel economy were excellent. Great long distance car.

Worst Features

Heavier duty brakes and transmission. Less expensive replacement shocks are now available elsewhere.
